Best forum posts of 2010!

Post by Sommer Leigh » December 28th, 2010, 7:21 pm

Ok forumfriends, I have a challenge for you!

Reach back, way back, to January of 2010 and think through the months about all the helpful posts, the exciting posts, the crazy posts that have drawn your attention and help me create a "Best of 2010" list.

What do you think shouldn't be forgotten?

Great idea!

There have been so many great posts it's tough to choose, but I just want to make sure that whatever list results includes this thread by one Sommer Leigh: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2753

I like Sommer's posts alot! But I think I'll try the Epic Sandcastle Algebra Challenge next year.

I have to go now. My cat is eating my velociraptor. They're violating the laws of probability!

What was the question again?

Nathan!! Thanks for the shout out, I'm totally blushing. That was one of my favorite projects. I'm really glad so many people liked it and I didn't spend a month talking to myself. I kind of can't wait for November next year.

I was going to post my favorites last night but I got wrapped up in reading the archives. Man we had some good conversations this year. I wish I'd started posting more earlier on instead of lurking shyly in the background.

These are some of my favorites, though there were a lot I wanted to pick out. These ones stood out as some of the best I think though. (I am ashamed to admit how much time I spent on the thread about LOST.)

Thanks so much, Sommer, for liking some of my posts. :)

I like all of the posts here, but I think there is nothing that compares to your 30 days of NaNo advice. I second Nathan's nomination - and third it - and fourth it. That was an amazing series of posts!
